The Aesculapius Award is designed to promote and to encourage excellence in the communication of good information about healthy lifestyles, disease prevention, and health care treatments," said Dr. Goldschmidt. "This year's awards continue the very high standard of creativity and quality that we have seen since the awards began. We are delighted by the wide variety of organizations that chose to submit entries this year. We congratulate the winners of our Annual Award and Award of Excellence."

This award was established by the Health Improvement Institute, a non-profit, tax-exempt organization based in Bethesda, Maryland, to promote informed consumer lifestyle choices and health care decisions.
